Three hour guided kayak tour $90

The three hour tour covers six miles and is designed as an active kayak tour.  The morning is the best time to venture out of the harbour for a tour of Victoria’s coastline and nearby islands because the wind is typically at its lightest.  July through September is Pupping Season when we have the chance to see female harbour seals caring for their young.

Children 12 years and older. Reservations required.

9am, 11am**, 5pm**


Two hour guided kayak tour $65

The two hour guided kayak tour travels less distance than our three hour tour.  Depending on the wind, we may venture out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca or explore Victoria’s Inner harbour.  We’ll have chance encounters with Harbour seals, river otters, many types of shore birds.

Children 7 years and older.  Reservations required.

1pm, 4pm*, 7pm**

New to kayaking?

We include a safety briefing and lesson with every tour.  We’ll show you how to use the kayak safety equipment, how to paddle and steer the kayak and how to get safely across a busy harbour.
